About this winery

When Laura Catena decided to create a line of wines of her very own, she made a conscious decision to pay tribute to the traditional, small, family, growers and to a group of special vineyard sites in Mendoza, Argentina. The name La Posta refers to La Posta del Viñotero – ‘the Tavern of the Grape Grower’, found in every local village where farmers go to get their mail after a hard day in the vineyards. There, they meet to drink wine, laugh, and tell stories, agreeing to agree or disagree...

Notes about product

Malbec & Syrah grapes were hand-harvested from 34 year old vines located in the Uco Valley - La Consulta / Bonarda: Eastern Region.

Winemaking notes

After harvest, 30% of the grapes were aged in 2nd use French barrels for 8 months.

Tasting notes

Aromas of red cherries and raspberries are infused with mocha and spice hints that give up the secret for whats about to come. The first sip washes broadly across your palate like a flood of sweet, fresh fruit and a vibrant and long finish. The hints of baking spice and some oak keep the fruit flavors fresh and lively.

James Suckling, April 2020

Spicy red and dark plums with currants, cassis and violets. The palate has a sleek, juicy feel with purple fruit and chocolate to close. A blend of 60% malbec, 20% bonarda and 20% syrah. Drink now. Screw cap.
